Mikhail Fiodorovich Larionov (1881-1964)
Mikhail Larionvo was pretty much the first to make a movement toward rayonism.
In 1912 he initiated two very important movements: Rayonismm (Rayism) and Neo-primitivism. Rayonism was inspired by Italian Futurism and Neo-primitivism and represented a development of the artist's Fauvist and Expressionist interests.
Rayonism was officially launched at the Target exhibition of 1913. In 1914 he traveled with Goncharova to Paris. They held an exhibition at the Gallerie Paul Guillaume.
Mikhail Larionov’s Pieces
Mikhail's main focus is abstract art but he doesn’t always create abstract art. The piece to the right “ Autumn Twilight” is not abstract.
